The Boston College field hockey team's undefeated streak came to an end after a 2-0 loss to Boston University at the Newton Campus Field on Friday night. The Eagles faced a tough squad that is off to the best start in BU field hockey program history. Boston University improves to 5-0 for the first time, while Boston College falls to 5-1.

The game began as a defensive battle with both teams struggling to shoot. The Terriers managed to break the spell first as Andrea Greene scored her first goal of the night in the 13th minute after a volley in front of the net. BC goalie Kristine Stigas saved two shots before Greene snuck one past her.

Boston College responded on a penalty corner as Jacqui Moorfield took a hard shot after a stick stop by Emily Kozniuk. The Eagles celebrated but in a controversial play, the goal was called back by the referees.

BU struck again early in the second half with Greene once more taking it to the net. She fired a hard shot into the back of the net off a pass from Jacinda McLeod for the game winner.

BC's offense had nine shots and forced five corners, while Stigas had four saves.

Next weekend the Eagles travel to Maryland for their first ACC conference game of the season. They are slated to play the Terrapins at 1:00 p.m. on Saturday, September 18. Maryland will host BC's game against Towson the next afternoon, Sunday, September 19 at 12:00 p.m.

Game Notes: Jacqui Moorfield had a game-high four shots, leading the Eagles on penalty corners...Courtney Tavener had two, and Janna Anctil, Tilly Brampton, and Jessica Roberts each had one...this is the first time a BU field hockey team has ever started a season at 5-0.
